Beyond the Epic Run

From the website.

"About nine years ago, a Swiss couple named Serge and Nicole Roetheli had a novel idea. What if they sold all their possessions, quit their jobs, said goodbye to their friends and families, including Serge’s two kids, and ran across the world?

Apparently finding no compelling reason to stay home, they went ahead with it, although technically it was Serge who did the running - more than 25,000 miles - and Nicole who followed on a Yamaha motorcycle towing a small trailer packed with what few possessions they had left, and a video camera. The trip, which started in February 2000, took five years to complete. They covered 25,400 miles, with Serge running the equivalent of one marathon four days a week. They traveled in Morocco, the Sahara Desert, South Africa, the Middle East, Asia, Australia, South America, the United States, and Canada."



Nice. There is a screening coming up in Los Angeles. No date has been set for it yet, but I hope to check it out with Nicole.
